Recipe By The Canadian Living Test Kitchen (Source)

  • Preparation time: 30 minutes
  • Total time : 30 minutes

These frizzled shallots are totally addictive and make the perfect crispy topping for this holiday side dish. You can also use them to garnish other vegetables, including mashed potatoes.


  • 8 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced in rings
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) all-purpose flour
  • VegetabIe oil, for frying
  • 1-1/2 lb (680 g) green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt


Separate shallots into individual rings; toss with flour.

In small saucepan, heat about 1 inch (2.5 cm) oil to 350°F (180°C). Fry shallots, in batches and turning once, until crisp and golden, 2 to 4 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel–lined plate. (Make-ahead: Cover with paper towel and set aside at room temperature for up to 3 hours.)

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook green beans until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain and return to pot. Add butter, lemon zest, lemon juice and sa< toss to coat. Serve topped with shallots.
